I haven't posted in a while. I am still trying to find my "summer groove": that little routine that gets me accustomed to having other people home with me when they have been at school all day for the last nine months! It's the start and stop of doing things around the house, gardening, sewing, and blogging, to take her somewhere that sometimes has my head in a spin. And it has my teenage daughter's head in a spin, too, especially when she realizes that she can't sleep all day, and "yes, you still have to do chores during the summer" and "no, you can't have a slumber party every night!" She still has fun, though. She is learning that it's better to get your everyday stuff done so that you can play later. She is still learning, but all is going well.
Here's where you'll find me alot this summer: sitting on my back porch after I have gone for my long morning walk and working in my flower beds. You will also find me reading my favorite quilting magazines after I have done my everyday stuff like laundry and cleaning the house.
